I replaced the seal on my mother-in-laws LG washer last month. The seal has 2 bands. One that the attaches to the drum, and one that attaches to the front of the washer. The hardest part about replacing the seal, is gaining access to the seal. Once you gain access to the seal, it can be a little tricky getting the bands back on, because you have limited area to work. There is no special tool or tricks to get it back on, just persistance.

Leaking water from front of door. Replaced boot seal but still leaking. It looks like door is kicked out at the bottom. Would replacing the hinges help?


Try turning the water pressure down. If you have high water pressure the water comes into the dispenser to hard and splashes over the front & side of the dispenser draw the trickles down the inside of the front panel out on to the floor. Very common front loader problem.

You have a broken drain pump and needs to be replaced. The part number is 4681EA2001D. This is a big job requiring a special tool to remove the spring clamp on the door seal.
Good luck.

I can't find a tub clean feature on my LG WM0642HW. I am having trouble with moldy smelling clothing and want to try some of your solutions but can't find the tub clean feature.


My LG doesn't have one either, but I recall that they recommend using the "Rinse and Spin" feature. Add a bit of chlorine bleach, run the cycle, and then "always" leave the door ajar after each use so that the machine can dry out. Cleaning out the drain area at the bottom of the rubber door seal helps too. You'd be surprised what I've found there -- other than the usual dog and cat hair!

Door leaking on model WM0642H


HOW BAD DOES THE DOOR GASKET LOOKS? IS IT MILDEWED, HARDENED, OR LITTLE RIP? IF SO, YOU NEED TO REPLACE THAT. YOU CAN ALSO BEND YOUR DOOR A LITTLE. GENTLY AND CAREFULLY THOUGH, YOU DON'T WANT TO BREAK IT
